What Are 9 Uses of Magnets in the House?

Magnets are very common in our home and you can easily find several magnets in the house. Magnets are also very useful in our everyday life. Many of our household appliances can not work properly without magnets. So, in this article, let's take a look at where magnets are used at home, and what role they play.

Magnets in the House Magnets in the House

1. Book Magnets 

If you are a bookworm and often read books, then you may find that some books on your bookshelf use magnets (such as neodymium magnets) to keep them closed. Very interesting? Isn't it?

2. Magnetic Knife Rack

For many people, how to properly place some sharp kitchen utensils, such as knives and forks, has always been a very headache problem. As we all know, keeping the sharp knives in the drawer is very dangerous. With the help of the magnets, sharp knives and forks can be securely held on a knife rack on the wall.

3. Microwave Magnets

Almost every household has a microwave oven, which brings much convenience to our daily life. But have you ever thought that magnets play a very important role in microwave ovens? Usually, there are two magnets inside a magnetron inside the microwave oven, which are used to guide electrons to heat food.

4. Laptop Magnets

Many of the small parts of our commonly used laptop computers use magnets. For example, magnets are used in the speaker and the motor of the small fan on the laptop computers. In addition,  you can also find a magnet in the laptop computers'  hard drive and usually one in the lid so that the computers can tell whether the lid is open or closed.

5. Telephone Magnets 

Magnets can also be found on the phones we usually use. Small magnets are adopted by the microphones and speakers of telephones to capture and emit sound.

6. Vacuum Cleaner Magnets

Magnets are also one of the essential accessories of the vacuum cleaner. The working principle of the vacuum cleaner is to use the motor to drive the blades to rotate at a high speed, and to generate negative air pressure in the sealed shell to suck the dust. And the motors of the vacuum cleaners use powerful neodymium magnets to produce high suction.

7. Speaker Magnets

One of the most important pieces of equipment for the sound system in our home is the speaker. You can find magnets in all speakers. Magnets can interact with the coil of wire in the speaker to produce sound. To produce powerful sounds, some of the small powerful speakers adopt neodymium magnets.

8. Treadmill Magnets

Treadmills are a great choice for home fitness equipment. Usually, magnets are required on treadmills. When we are running on the treadmill, a magnet passes through a sensor as the machine moves, counting revolutions and converting them into distance information.

9. Small Handbag Magnets 

Many girls love handbags, not only because they are very useful, but also because they are representative of fashion. Handbags are famous for their use of magnets that can conveniently snap together because of the power of magnetism.
